Why are kids on here pregnant like at 14 ? Read below

Yeah a big chunk of the blame goes to the parents for not guiding and guarding their kids enough to let them have the opportunity and mindset to do this and get in such kind of a hole. Societal environment too, it used to be only the TV and magazines who've done in the past that helped propagate s-e-x and incorporate it into the minds of youngins. With the most powerful information tool ever invented getting added into the mix of things, INTERNET, things are bound to go terribly wrong.

Get your act together parents! ha! :P

Because we, as a society, don't become involved in our kids lives as we should.

I agree with you. Parents don't seem to teach their kids anything and the kids definitely don't listen or care. They think it's cool to have s3x.....

I simply told my daughter that if she ends up 14 and pregnant there's going to be a new show called 14 and missing.
Seriously, I don't have to stress anything to her...my mother got pregnant with me at 13, had me at 14, and is mentally messed up from everything. It was her very first time. That would mess anyone up. Medically she's frigid now, and not just in a sexual manner, she can't physically love ANYONE. No hugs or kisses for her children.
My daughter sees this and knows that her grandmothers whole life has been messed up, all because she thought she was ready to do adult things.
I also have very candid conversations with my daughter.

Sad that your Mother had to learn hard truths in such a traumatic manner and is scarred for life. Hope your daughter can learn from you in a loving way what relationships can and should be like at the appropriate time, not as a child.

Its because they were not taught like you were...America lacks self-control and morals.. 'its all about me attitude".

Oh, where do I start? It's the parents fault for not being involved in their kid's life and expecting other people to do all of the parenting for them, it's the media's fault for propagating s3x as being a cool thing to do and the only way to show that you truly love someone not to mention shows like teen mom that make it sound cool to be pregnant before you are able to be responsible for the baby, and it's the fault of the kid's themselves because they are constantly putting pressure on each other to lose their virginity as early in life as possible.

Thank you! I didn't really mean to get up on my soapbox, lol, but this is something that I am really passionate about and it aggravates me that the situation gets worse everyday and nobody does anything about it, especially the parents. I have a daughter and I don't want her to grow up thinking the only way she can get a guy's attention and keep it, is to get pregnant by him at a young age.
Report as
Nah, didn't come across as 'soapboxy' too me, just straight up truth! Hope your daughter realizes that life is about a whole lot more than having s3x at too young an age before being mentally ready for all it entails.
The pressure really is insanely crazy... From both male and female sadly.
Seems your right there for her so she's lucky!:-).

I think it's BOTH the parents and the kid's faults. The parents didn't teach their kids not to do those kinds of things. And the kids are too stupid to use common sense.

It is a large part in how children are raised. I was raised in a Christian home. I was taught to respect myself. My sisters and I never had a cerfue or ever got grounded, but we respected our parents and ourselves. We communicated with our parents. We hung out with friends but never indulged in drugs, sex, or parties. Some might think its lame and boring, but im STD free and I didnt have children until I was 24 and married. I hope I instill the same in my children. I think its sad when children have children then the grandparents have to raise them. Just my thought!

I agree with you it is very sad that grandparents have to raise their grandchild.
Report as
Well my opinion is that my parents had their time when they raised there kids, now its time for them to slow down and enjoy life, not raise a second round of kiddos. Im sure the grandparents out there love their grandchildren or they would not do it, but its not fair to them or the kids. Society today has made it seem normal to have numerous kids and pon them off on the next relative or agency who will take them. I feel if you are adult enough to have a child, then you should be adult enough to raise it. Some excusions do apply. Im referring to the ones who are not taking responsibility for their actions.

Part of it lands on the parents -- they are responsible for teaching their children.
-
Another part is that kids today do not seem to value themselves. They think that if it is on TV or the Internet, it MUST be okay.
-
Religion doesn't really have anything to do with it. Love is not a religious aspect of life.
-
If a parent teaches their child to love, value, and respect themselves they would have no reason to seek out irrational behavior.
-
I'm sure that others may not agree with this, but self respect goes a long way. Children seeking sexual relations are looking for something. Self worth, love, acceptance....something they are lacking.

idkifimright

i agree with you i dont believe in sex before marriage. but the reason the parents dont guide us or teach us about that, well i think, is because they dont expect us to get pregnant at 15 16 17 18 maybe not even 19 unless ur married...:P
